Saw this a little bit ago. I was surprised that we were so high up on the list of neighborhoods. The areas aren't the greatest, but didn't think they warranted a #3 and 4. Just my personal opinion.

BULL CHIT pure and simple BULLchit

And why to we G.A.S. what someone from somewhere has to say or post.

ANYONE with a brain and highschool math knows the #'s are skewed.

when you talk crimes per thousand, they use the census figures vs the cromes committed. they do NOT take into account the fact that on any given day there are as musch as 750,000 more pople in town.

pure hogwash

Ummm.. unsure if you are trying to tell me the problem is me?

LOL.

Okay, I've lived in Vegas for years, and I certainly won't go in those areas at any time of day. Must be my lack of math skills? Or wait, maybe it is having LIVED in Vegas??? Next you'll say that low math skills and idiots think Anthem or Seven Hills is not very nice at all. Just skewed stats.

Why GAS to someone that posts? Gee, I thought it was a forum! Then keep your opinions to yourself and participate in posts that encourage discussion in the realms of which you feel better associated.

Lemme tell ya, I had to spend some time working at H & Owens a few years ago, and the manager, who happens to be of the black persuasion, and I think, lived in the West Side all her life, warned us, no matter what racial preference we had, not to be in that neighborhood after dark. My black friends offered to walk with me to the store, and warned me not to go to one particular store right across the street. We had at least one employee robbed in the parking lot on their way to work early one morning by a 13 year old kid. I think that happens often. My former wife was robbed at LV BL N and Owens by a 13 year old kid once. The gangs know the kids will get off with a slap on the wrist if they get caught, so they send them in to do the robbing.

I had a close friend that grew up on D Street near Bonanza. He said not a night went by that he didn't hear gun shots while lying in his bed. So it's been a dangerous area for a long, long time.

On the other hand, the soul food you can get over there is pretty good, and my wife says our "ghetto" would be considered a nice neighborhood in Houston.

theirs a lot of people who doubt this list because in alot of these places the city has will have way more dangerous areas that do not make the list, while a area with lower crime will make the list.

just pointing that out their.

haha, D street is where a homeless guy tried to get into my car while I was driving. I'm in those areas all the time for my job. Cleavland is easily believable. Just driving through it you can tell how terrible it has become. I came through on my cross country trip and it looked like the city was rusted and falling apart at the seems.

Again, the numbers have been skewed. They combined property crimes along with crimes against persons, that doesn't mean that the neighborhood necessarily is "dangerous". Crime-ridden yes but dangerous? No.

The fact that Baltimore didn't even make this list means these people didn't do their homework, there are parts there that make the neighborhoods listed look like Disneyland. Even downtown Albany N.Y. where my father grew up is much worse than the 4 Vegas neighborhoods.
